    Went fishing for the first time in 18 months this weekend and noticed that the tail on my ZMan baits were all folded over. Was wondering from you guys who use them regularly if these are now trash or if they will return to their original state if i let them chill in the sun for a minute. Thanks for any advice.

    Wrap em tight and straight and leave them in the sun for a little bit and they'll be fine.

    I've also heard that putting them in boiling water for a few seconds will help...give it a shot on one or two.

    I’ve done it and it works on worms, haven’t tried it on Z-man’s though, I also boil certain plastics that I want softened up to get more action and that works, I don’t know if it makes any difference but I add salt and garlic powder for the heck of it.
